March to Calvary Hill.

Groom Cross

To use the word 'propaganda' to describe God's love for man and His work at the cross and the empty tomb is a bit off the mark. I saw the cross from I-40 in 2006 but did not stop. After looking at their website I knew I had to go back, which I did in June 2007. What an inspiring presentation of God's work at Calvary. The marker in memory of the victims of abortion brought tears to my eyes, just as it apparently did to the young girl.

In addition to Mr. Glantz's propaganda about "pro-life propaganda." If simply stating the facts make an 8 year old cry, then those facts are pretty bad. That's the shame, not that we're not protecting his child from his values.

Giant Cross

I loved to always see this cross when I was a trucker. You could see it from 25 miles away. It was tiny and then it got bigger and bigger. By the way, what's wrong with the so called pro-life propaganda that someone said was at the base of the cross? The writer stated it made his 8 year old daughter cry. SOMEONE needs to cry for the aborted babies that have been murdered in this country.

2nd Largest Cross in the Western Hemisphere

Drove by many times on the way out west and never stopped. We stopped this time and it was well worth it. Didn't realize there was so much to see at the base of the cross -- all the stations of the cross in bronze and a plaque that describes each in bronze. Beautiful sight. They do not sell film at the gift shop. To buy film you have to drive into Groom - only 5 minutes away.

Sept. 2005 - Tipster Ron Glantz writes: "Visitors with children should be warned about all of the pro-life propaganda around the cross... It made my 8-year-old daughter cry. It was five years ago."

2nd Largest Cross in the Western Hemisphere

In addition to the huge cross, there is an installation of life-size, or near life-size bronze Stations of the Cross around the foot of the cross. These have been being installed slowly over time. West of the Cross is a crucifixion scene up on a hill. And East of the cross is a memorial. Just south of the crucifixion scene is a climate controlled building with info regarding the Shroud of Turin. The Cross is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.
